If only…

AUGUST 9, 1969

…Quentin Tarantino’s version of the Sharon Tate murders was what really happened instead of the worst bloodshed in Hollywood history.

In the movie, the devil-cult butchers mistakingly went to the house next door occupied by a faded TV action hero and his stunt double who killed the hippies real good.

Poignant scene of what could have been (tap bottom right for full screen).

The Sixties ended abruptly on August 9, 1969, when word of the murders on Cielo Drive traveled like a brush fire through the community.’ — Joan Didion

  1. Yep, the decade of love ended in a bloodbath. I mildly enjoyed the movie, and the alternate reality ending, good to see the crazed hippies get it.

  2. Tarantino used the same alternate history approach for his movies ‘Inglorious Basterds’ with Brad Pitt (Hitler’s death in the burning movie theater) and ‘Django Unchained’ (a rewrite of the Civil War timeline).
